Sign the petition here to stop live exports


Today I received an email to say that in 21 days, MPs will be debating whether to stop live exports from the UK.   MP Theresa Villiers announced that the Defra Secretary of State Michael Gove is looking very seriously at a ban on exporting live animals for slaughter. 

The petition on the British government website calling for an end to live exports now stands at over 67,000 signatures but IT NEEDS MORE!

On 29 January, over 50 MPs, policy makers and celebrities attended a parliamentary event to discuss live exports. This was organised by Craig Mackinlay, MP for South Thanet.  Theresa Villiers summed up the sentiment of those at the event, saying "Inflicting this needless suffering on animals is not acceptable and it must be stopped”.

Please sign this petition today.
